(Newser) – Add Clint Eastwood to the growing line of Republicans throwing their weight behind an amicus brief filed with the Supreme Court in support of gay marriage, reports Breitbart.

CNN notes that last year he told Ellen DeGeneres that his attitude is "part of the Libertarian idea: Leave everybody alone."
